The fake promise of a Dalit CM

The fake promise of a Dalit CM

Issues, SC Welfare
Before becoming the Chief Minister himself, KCR had promised to make a Dalit, the first CM of the new state Telangana. However, soon after the electoral win TRS chief has forgot his promise and that was the beginning of the bad days for Scheduled Castes in the state. SC communities constitute nearly 16 % of the population in Telangana. TRS government earlier made a SC legislator T Rajaiah Deputy CM but dismissed him on the complaints of alleged corruption. On the other hand except for this, TRS government has done nothing concrete for the welfare of SCs in the state. The Kalyana Lakshmi scheme for the SC girls turned out to be a big scam with officials and middlemen involving in it. Most of the SC sub plan funds were remained unspent or diverted to the other purposes. It is interesting ...
When will 12% ST Reservation become a reality?

When will 12% ST Reservation become a reality?

Issues, ST Welfare
The population of Scheduled Tribes (ST) communities in Telangana stands at nearly 12 % as per the State government records. State government has been promising to give a facelift to the community’s weak socio-economic condition. It has also promised to provide 12 % reservations on the basis of backwardness and poverty. However, most of the promises made to the ST communities languishing around just like in case of promises to the Muslims in state. ST communities have staged several dharnas, organized rallies and protest programs to pressurise the state government over the implementation of poll promises made for them but in vain. TRS has not given a due share to STs in dispensing party tickets during the election and the cabinet also lack any ST candidate. TRS promised to resolve the l
Old City Is In The State of Neglect

Old City Is In The State of Neglect

Issues, Our Old City
TRS Government has promised to transform the old city into a heritage city by improving the infrastructure and basic amenities during its tenure. Chief Minister KCR himself made several promises with regard to the old city development. Contrary to the claims, it took nearly two years for the TRS government to re-initiate the Charminar Pedestrian project that was pending for years due to various reasons. Major problems of the Old city like education, sanitation, basic amenities, water supply and sewerage system remain the same as those were before the formation of the new state. On the other hand governmetn has no plan to tackle to socio-economic issues bewildering the residents of Old city for a long. Despite several promises for the development, illegal financiers have been looting the
TRS Govt pushed Health Sector to ICU

TRS Govt pushed Health Sector to ICU

Health, Issues
Health sector has been on the ventilator in the state. This is the most neglected sector by the TRS government and need to be overlooked and treated with empathy and emergently. Before coming to the power, TRS has promised to strengthen the public sector or government hospitals across the state but we can see that TRS ministers are busy supporting only the corporate sector hospitals. Government failed to provide the healing touch to the deteriorating government hospitals across the state, rather it intended to demolish and dislodge the old and historic government run hospitals (Ex: Osmania Hospital, Chest Hospital etc,.). TRS government has tried to snatch away the facility of Arogya Shree scheme launched during the previous Congress regime that has been providing corporate health facili...
KCR Govt ignored BCs’ Welfare

KCR Govt ignored BCs’ Welfare

BC Welfare, Issues
The population of Backward Class communities in Telangana is considerably higher. In fact they constitute a major chunk of the population, yet they have been ignored in almost all the walks of life including politics. BC classes complain of discrimination and being neglected for years but showed their willingness to support the TRS party believing a change would take place under TRS regime. However, TRS has neglected the welfare of the BC communities to the extent that except few castes most of the BC communities have been on the recievig end. No concrete steps were taken by the TRS government for the BC welfare so far. The BC welfare ministry has been waiting for the real justice and to experience the real fruits of Telangana formation as promised by the TRS party and government later. ...
Villages lacking basic amenities

Villages lacking basic amenities

Issues, Rural Development
In the name of rural development, TRS government has created several terminologies but nothing concrete was done so far. Mana Vuru Mana Pranalika, Mana Vuru Mana Cheruvu and others are mere slogans. Mission Kakatiya was in headlines for large scale irregularities and corruption. Except few works under Mission Kakatiya, TRS government has done nothing earth shaking in rural Telangana. Most of the rural areas have been reeling under severe water crisis and drought. Water supply and electricity has been a day dream in most of the rural areas. Infrastructure development remained a big challenge. TRS claimed that it has a surplus budget of thousands of crores but has ignored the rural Telangana after coming to power despite the fact that the statehood movement was largely supported by the ru...
Hyderabad lost its brand image under TRS Rule

Hyderabad lost its brand image under TRS Rule

Apna Hyderabad, Issues
Reiterating that Hyderabad was heart and soul of Telangana, TRS government always pretended to work for the real welfare of it. TRS has always promised to develop the city on part with global standards. However, TRS leadership has confused the people its changing statements about Hyderabad. In his earlier days, Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao promised to develop Hyderabad on lines of Bangkok, later said he would develop the city like Istambul. And for past few months TRS has been advertising that it would transform city into a global destination. In fact Hyderabad has been a global city for past hundreds of years. Most of the welfare projects that involve the infrastructure development in the city require proper roads, water supply, sanitation, electricity, reforms in the traditiona...
Muslims Are Still Waiting for 12% Reservation

Muslims Are Still Waiting for 12% Reservation

Issues, Muslims Welfare
As many other crucial poll promises of the TRS government, the promise of Muslim welfare also remained a myth. When the statehood struggle was going on, Muslims from across Telangana thought that TRS would work for their real welfare, however after two years of TRS rule in the state this promise was proved wrong. Muslims constitute a considerable size in the population of state. Muslims were happy that a separate state of Telangana would be a great place for them to thrive in terms of not only education and employment but also in political aspect. However, the negligent TRS leadership was never up to welfare of the community. TRS started neglecting state Muslims from the day it started campaigning for Assembly elections. It deceived the Muslim community while distributing the party ticke...
Crime against women on the rise in Telangana

Crime against women on the rise in Telangana

Law & Order
Immediate after coming to power, TRS government has showered a spree of sops on Police department. TRS government later called for a friendly policing. However, of late it turned out to be big mistake as the crime rate increased above normal. Several examples of police involved in extortion and ransom besides running a land mafia rattled the state. In one such case a Karimnagar cop was arrested on charges of extortion who has been exploiting the people on gun point. In another case, also in Karimnagar district, a cop has tried to shield the people involved in a rape of a Dalit woman. These two examples are tip of the iceberg. On one hand police were given several sops and facilities by the government that seems to encourage them for committing any offense against the gullible people. On...
TRS Govt’s Industrial Policy fails to give jobs

TRS Govt’s Industrial Policy fails to give jobs

Industrial Policy
If we go back to the time when statehood movement in the region was on its high, we only hear the slogans of ‘Our resources, our jobs and our land’. People of the state, especially educated youth wanted to have plenty of job opportunities and did not want others to snatch this legitimate right of theirs. The whole statehood movement was concentrated and focused on employment and self rule in its peak time. When the state was successfully bifurcated, Telangana youth heaved a sigh of relief and waited for the opportunities to galore in education and employment. However, after grabbing the power in the state, TRS government has forgot the very important component of the movement despite claiming to spearhead the movement. The new industrial policy rolled out by the Telangana government is n
